HURON – Mike Eric John Stammitti, 48, of Huron, passed away December 15, 2017, at Firelands Regional Medical Center, Sandusky, due to heart failure.

   Mike was born May 21, 1969 in Lorain, OH and graduated from Lorain High School in 1988 and served in the US Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller.  His work experience included Ford Motor Co, In Avon Lake, both Lorain and Erie County Juvenile Detention Centers, and Steris Corp. at the Cleveland Clinic.

   Mike was a Freemason.  He loved giving and helping others.  His vision of life continues after his death; his corneas were donated to a recipient in need.  If you met as strangers, you departed as friends, and he likely knew somebody you knew.

   He is preceded in death  by his mother, ClayVerne (Robinson) Stammitti; father, Richard P. Stammitti; Brother, Al Stammitti; stepson, Kyle Miller; a niece, Jessica Toth; and nephews, Steve Roszos and Adrian Roszos.
